The Protective Power of Grapes in Food

Consumers are seeking healthier, more natural alternatives due to growing concerns about the negative health effects of synthetic additives. They prefer foods with clean labels, containing natural and minimally processed ingredients. The replacement of additives such as nitrites, sulfites, BHT and BHA with natural extracts rich in phytonutrients responds to this demand. This approach not only maintains food quality and safety, but also aligns with current trends that value transparency and naturalness in ingredients.

Grape extract to preserve food

Grape extract is a natural recycled ingredient derived from grapes that has been shown to have effective antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. This makes it a promising alternative to synthetic preservatives in food protection.

Antimicrobial properties

Grape extract contains polyphenols, which inhibit the growth of foodborne pathogens. This can extend the shelf life of food and reduce the risk of foodborne illness.

Antioxidant properties

Grape extract is rich in antioxidants, which help protect foods from oxidative damage. Oxidation can cause food spoilage, causing discoloration, rancidity, and unpleasant flavors. By scavenging free radicals and preventing lipid oxidation, grape extract can help maintain the quality and freshness of food products.
